ME & MY WORK
After working several communication fields, I landed into photography as the perfect way of visual storytelling. From my background in journalism, I put into my work the will to capture the truest and most honest essence of a subject, an event, a person, a moment on the street, and tell their story the best possible way. From my filmmaking studies I incorporate a cinematic aesthetic/mood to my photographs that seeks to bring all the elements in the frame to create evocative images that convey strong stories in the audience's mind.
Growing up, psychology was always a second vocation, and even though it was a path I did not follow, I brought from it a very heightened curiosity towards studying the human spirit, and a natural sense of empathy that proves very useful to connect with my subjects and the work I'm doing. It also helps me "feel" the scene or situation in front of me, to know the best moment when to take the shot, either with someone I'm taking a portrait of, a candid situation in the city, some actors engaged in a scene, or a speaker on a stage.
I'm available for hire for any type of people photography (headshots, portraits, weddings, events, entertainment, photojournalism, fashion, behind the scenes, documentary, creative visual storytelling, etc.). For any work inquiries, please email me or call me. You'll find my info in Contact section. Thank you so much!
I'm a professional Visual Storyteller from Spain, living in New York City for over 7 years. My work includes photography (favorite genres Street Photography, Portraiture and Entertainment) and journalism, with a background in filmmaking (both fiction and documentary). I love capturing stories and emotions from life and sharing them with the world through the new visual social media channels (these days the Backspaces app is my current favorite).
I've been considered among the pioneers of Mobile Photography since 2008. My photographic work has been featured in international exhibits, magazines, newspapers, blogs, TV segments and even three book covers. One of my cellphone images is on the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art (Atlanta). I've also been a public speaker about Visual Storytelling, Mobile Photography and Street Photography - including twice as a special guest at Apple Stores and in NYC Social Media Week.
I'm proud to have worked with a diverse group of clients, from entertainment celebrities in my work with theater (24 Hour Broadway Plays), music (Best Song Oscar winner, singer and actress Marketa Irglova), corporate entrepreneurial businesses (Blue Coat, Gamification Co), fashion (BAR III for Macy's, Tory Burch) and a diverse array of brands like Beefeater, HP, Panasonic, etc.
Alongside my husband Anton Kawasaki, I'm a a co-founder and instructor of the Mobile Photo Workshop: "The Storytelling Series", a group of online workshops on Street Photography, Portraiture and the concept of "Documenting Your World" (through journalistic and documentary techniques), all through the use of mobile devices only and focused on the concept of #Storytelling.
